Review: Avon Perfect Kiss Lipstick Racy Red

I was lucky enough last time I went home my mum had purhcased me a few products and this lipstick was one of them (you can see the rest here). Avon were bringing out a new range of lipsticks and I’d been eyeing up the colours. You can see them all here. They are currently on offer for only £4 so I’d snap them up quick. The colour I’m showing you today is Racy Red.


I love the packaging. It’s silver so stands out against my other lipsticks so I can pick it out easily. The lid is secure and it just has Avon simply embossed onto it. I love how they’d carried this through and also embossed the bullet of the lipstick with Avon. I love this touch and think it makes the product seem more expensive than it is.


Racy Red is quite a pink toned red. I find this makes it really easy to wear and very flattering on my paler skin tone. It’s super pigmented and one swipe leaves the lips well coated.


It has a slight shine to it when on the lips which I love but it’s not over powering like a gloss lipstick. It doesn’t drag on the lips either. I would say though that it does seem to end up on my teeth when ever I wear it so make sure to check your teeth after application.


It also lasts really well on the lips and leaves and even staining (no lip liner effect) on the lips. It’s not drying on the lips and provides great colour.


I absolutely love everything about these lipsticks. They provide great colour, great lasting power, stand out packaging and easy application. It’s also a red I find easy to wear. As it’s got the pink tone to it I find it looks better than a true red for everyday. As they are from Avon you can usually get them on offer. Don’t miss out on these while they are only £4. Such a bargain.

Have you tried the Perfect Kiss Lipstick? Are you a red lip fan?

    You are right. I think it looks much better on paler skin than darker skin tones. My skin would, unfortunately, be too yellow for it. Beauty Fashion Skin Care Blog -Girlie Blog Seattle | Casual Chic Fashion
